I did the procedure to a canotuna. It sat for a while and then was run out of gas. That would not run off of choke. I didnt even remove them and got it running again.

Before you dig into the carbs.

Maybe just maybe you got some bad gas, could be a long shot.
But the problem seems to have come up quickly and shortly after you filled up

I'll be addressing the fuel line issue later today and adding some seafoam see if that makes a difference if not then we will tackle the carbs sat.

if you tear into those carbs you will need to have them sync back together to be right. I also agree with the plug thought. My bike lost a lot of power at 9k till 11 when they went out. Carb jobs are not for beginers. You can cause more harm than good if you don't know what you are doing.

I had an ol ZX9 that did that same thing, one of the ram air ducts came loose. Maybe itís something easy like that. Not ruling out a carb issue, but check the clutch, it might be slipping. If your getting rpms, but no power, it could be that.

should seafoam be added to an empty tank or a full tank?

hmm... just installed some ram air duct hoses could that really be the issue? Im not having any problems switching through the gears so I hope it's not the clutch

Ram air has no effect until over 120.

Remember an engine is just an elaborate air pump. Its sucking more then air is being charged into it. Now if the tunnels were restricting air flow, clogging the filter etc I could see that being an issue.

pros and cons.

Carb bikes usually wont leave you stranded when they have issues.



So what are the plans?
